curtain call

I did it!
Dont you love it when a plan comes together?
I had just enough fabric to make two curtains.
 I had to add an oddment(of the same fabric)
 to the top of them to make them long enough.
If you look in the first picture
you can just about make out the additions
at the top.
I don't notice now,
I'm sure most wont!

  9. Oh gorgeous curtains! I can't see any additions from where I'm standing

  11. Great curtains but such a lovely home you are making! Can't believe someone threw out those gorgeous chairs! What is wrong with them?? So glad you managed to rescue them!

  12. You decided against the mismatched look then? :) The curtains look great and I can't see the addition at all. Perhaps its a bit like when you have a pimple on your face and think everyone is looking at it when really they don't even notice :D
    And the backs on those chairs are just beautiful.
